Did you know there are lyrics to the Andy Griffith Theme Song? Yes, there are words to go along with the jaunty whistling and stone skipping.
One of my readers called to tell me this! Okay it was my husband, but he’s a reader. Sometimes…
The Andy Griffith Show is one of my all-time favorites. While most people watch reality television, I’m hanging out with my friends at Mayberry.
Last week, Goober rebuilt a car in the courthouse, and an escaped convict captured Barney down by the fishing hole. Aunt Bee makes fried chicken and apple pie Every.Single.Night for supper.
Ahhhhh the good ole days—such a slice of Americana when dinner was called supper, and people enjoyed it together.
Play the video below to hear Andy sing the theme song.
This song is the perfect way to start (or end) your day. If this doesn’t put a smile on your face, I’m not sure anything will.
See? You’re smiling.
What’s your favorite Andy Griffith episode?

Farm. Food. Garden. Life.
P.S. The show aired 53 years ago today on October 3, 1960…
Aunt Bee: Did you like the white beans you had for supper?
Andy: Uh huh.
Aunt Bee: Well, you didn’t say anything.
Andy: Well, I ate four bowls. If that ain’t a tribute to white beans, I don’t know what is.
You are right! It made me smile. They should have included the lyrics. Used to love watching this show…and Aunt Bee!! Plain awesome and a great way to start the day. Thank you! ♥

Oh, yes. We used to sing along! About 8 years ago, when my son was living in Dallas, he informed me he was learning Spanish. I thought he was learning from a friend, but no, he was watching Andy Griffith re-runs on the Spanish Channel. He had been such a fan that he knew all the episodes by heart, so was picking up the phrases as translated…
Gayle Glass says
Should have said’ on ‘A’ Spanish channel – there were more of them than English, I think!
Andy is an icon and Paw will always make me smile! Didn’t everyone love the show and feel like friends with the Mayberry crew?
Nice to remember and learn the words!

I always LOVED this show! I think I saw every episode. My husband can whistle the theme song perfectly, haha!

Wonderful show – I was privy to meet the gentleman who was the whistler! He only had kind words for all of the people who worked on the show. It is a show that showed many families how to “cope” with one another. Thanks.
Brenda Stevens says

Awesome reminder, Talya! The Andy Griffith Show is one of my all-time favorite tv shows along with The Beverly Hillbillies…well, doggies, I bet you didn’t know that, now did you?…haha. It’s also kind of ironic that beans are not just called the ‘natural fruit,’ but they are also called ‘whistle berries,’ so it’s now wonder that Andy was such a great whistler, right?=)…So, anyhow, I think my all-time favorite Andy Griffith episode was the one where Opie lost his baseball in the old haunted house and Barney and Gomer went in to look for it…and then there’s the one where Barney buys a car from a dear sweet innocent old lady…and the one where the cow wore boots…and now, in my mind, I can hear Barney singing his “Juanita” love ballad…haha…Anyhow, thanks again for the stroll down Memory Lane!=)
